Rail Strike Monday 25 and Tuesday 26 May

Advice from Abellio regarding the possible rail strike on Monday 25 and Tuesday 26 May…

Industrial action has been called by members of the RMT and TSSA trades unions

working for the national rail infrastructure operator Network Rail, across the entire

UK rail network, for Monday/Tuesday 25/26 May. If the strike goes ahead the impact

on train services will be extremely severe. For Abellio Greater Anglia routes it will be

as follows :

On Monday 25 May, there will be no services at all after mid-day.

On Tuesday 26 May, there will be no services at all, except for an extremely limited,

skeleton service between London and Norwich, London and Colchester, London and

Shenfield and London and Stansted Airport in the middle of the day (plans for which

are currently being developed). These services will run infrequently with limited

capacity and only serve selected stations.

On Wednesday 27 May, services will start operating on all routes only from 06.00

onwards, but there will be service disruption and alterations as we work to restore

the full normal service.

Our advice to customers is do not travel by train on Monday/Tuesday 25/26

May.

We advise you to make other travel arrangements. Please also note that the

action will affect the entire national rail network and therefore affect plans for

journeys on other routes.

We apologise for the major inconvenience caused to your travel plans.
